June 8, 2018 - A Virginia grand jury alleges that a trash truck driver was under the influence when he collided with a train carrying Republican congressmen in January, leaving one person dead.

The Albemarle County Police Department said in a statement today that 31-year-old Dana W. Naylor Jr. was indicted on one count of involuntary manslaughter and one count of maiming another while driving under the influence.

It's not clear what the alleged intoxicant was.

One trash company employee was killed in the wreck near Crozet and a second passenger was seriously injured.  

The chartered Amtrak train was carrying dozens of lawmakers to an annual retreat in West Virginia. 

The National Transportation Safety Board issued a report in February that said the truck tried to cross the railroad tracks after the warning gates had already come down.
